Learning through REEEP projects

ICLEI Africa, together with ICLEI South Asia, attended the REEEP Project meetings in Johannesburg from 3-4 July 2012.

 Under Call 8 of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP) program, ICLEI South Asia is leading a funded project entitled: ‘South-south Cooperation between cities in India, Indonesia and South Africa’ in partnership with ICLEI Africa and ICLEI South East Asia. The meeting saw managers from 25 projects from around the world come together to share lessons learnt from challenges and successes mid-way through the project duration.

The agenda for the two days was interactive with the showcasing of all projects through poster exhibitions, where project managers could interact, ask questions and stimulate discussions. The agenda also provided the opportunity for key topics to be discussed through panels which included: building political will and persuading government; final steps for financial solutions; market rules of the game for up-scaling projects; and lastly, encouraging stakeholder and community participation.

The ICLEI team benefited greatly from the participaory discussions and interactions, learning valuable experiences from other projects that are relevant and applicable to the current projects that ICLEI is undertaking in 3 cities under ICLEI’s Local Renewable Initiative, these being Coimbatore, India; Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality. These are taking place between December 2011 and March 2013. For further information on the project, visit the project website.
